We have been waiting for this for a while now. And finally, it’s happening! GS Vijayan had made his debut as director over two decades ago (in 1989) with the Mammootty-starrer Charithram and had then made some notable films like Anavaal Mothiram, Saphalyam etc. But now, it has been over a decade since he made a film; his last was Cover Story in 2000. For quite some time, we have been hearing news of GS Vijayan making a comeback, that too with a Mammootty film. There was news that he would be making a film titled Raavu Maayumbol, with the superstar in the lead and Ranjith as the script writer. We kept waiting, but nothing happened. Then came the news that GS Vijayan would direct Mammootty in Malabar, based on Ranjith’s script. The latest and final news is that Malabar has changed to Bavuttiyude Naamathil. Mammootty will play the hero and Ranjith is handling the script. Ranjith will also be producing the film, which has Kavya Madhavan as the heroine and Narain in a key role. Shooting starts this month. Stay tuned for more from the GS Vijayan camp!
